I visit Singapore about twice a year and tried a few hotels but this is the first time staying at fairmont.
Location: The hotel is located just above the city hall mrt (subway) station which is one of the mrt hub in the city. You can reach here from the airport straight without changing lines which will take approximately 30 min and cost around $2. Its just 3 stops away from orchard road which is famous for shopping.
Conveniences: nothing beats the convinieces of staying here as the hotel is located above a pretty high end mall. All types of restaurants for different budgets are available. Supermarkets and bookstores also. 5 minutes walk to funan IT mall. Top to bottom fill with computer and gaming stores.
Guest services: nothing too complain here. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Check in time is 2pm but they are kind enough to allow me to check in around 10:30 as there are rooms available. As for higher floor to see better view of this city. Gym are open 24 hours a day. Breakfast serve wide variety of western and asian cuisine and they are pretty good, but my recommendation is not to take the breakfast package if possible and explore the local food just 1 floor down from the lobby.
The hotel rooms: the hotel definetely showing its age. Which is the reason for the renovation of the hotel lobby while i was there. The room itself is big with excellent bed and pillow. Lcd screens and nespresso machines makes the rooms feels more up to date. But i have issues with the hotel shower. The water pressure is good and strong. But i think there might be a problem with the water heater as it takes nearly a minute for the water to get hot. The following day, i need to turn the water to the hottest setting to get any decent heat. Decor feels a bit outdated but thats my personal opinion.
Tip: apply for their president club for free throught their website to get free wifi. But on peak hours, sometimes its hard to log in as many devices battling to get an ip address. Speed is standard.
